...trying to understand how interactive rebase works...
under what circumstances does git rebase -i <sha of some commit>
simply complete and present an empty git-rebase-todo for editing (i.e.
without a list of commits for me to pick/edit/squash etc)?
In my test, the rebase completes with the message "Successfully
rebased and updated refs/heads/newbranch." AND also a blank file (.git/
rebase-merge/git-rebase-todo) is opened in my editor.
I must be missing something... any suggestions would be appreciated
